For those with missing teeth, dental implants offer the closest replica for natural teeth. The design and functionality of implants are similar to your natural teeth and are permanently secured in your jawbone. If you want the advantage of fixed, secured individual prosthetic teeth, dental implants are the best restorative dentistry option available. If you live near San Marcos, Seguin or New Braunfels, TX, you can visit us at Sapphire Creek Dental to explore options in replacing your missing teeth with dental implants.
Dental implants have become the gold standard in dental restorations. Advancements in medical techniques and technology have made these prosthetic teeth available for more people who need single or multiple tooth replacements. These devices are implanted into the jawbone with a titanium post through oral surgery. Once in place, the bone grows around the post, securing it in place. The post is the “root” for a new individual tooth, or it can be used to attach to dentures to hold them in place.
Advanced Tooth Replacements
If you are choosing dental implants to replace individual teeth, an abutment and dental crown can be added to the implant. Dr. Archie Gomez and our dental team will create exceptional new teeth that will match your bite and tooth alignment. We use advanced imaging to create a 3-D image to design and carefully place your new tooth. Once the new crown is created and attached to your dental implant, you will have a natural-appearing and functional tooth replacement that is designed to last the rest of your life.
Dental implants are a wise investment in your appearance and overall health. While not everyone is a good candidate for implant restorations, they are available to more people now than ever before, due to bone grafting and other medical options. To learn more about dental implants and to determine whether they could be the right restoration option for you, contact us at our practice in New Braunfels, TX. We will schedule a consultation with Dr. Gomez to discuss restoring your smile.
